WRI 1000: Academic Inquiry and Writing Seminar (12224) (2020-2021)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1000 will study Octavia Butler’s novel Kindred and the ongoing legacy of slavery in the United States. The course provides first-year college students an introduction to academic inquiry. Its central purpose is to immerse students in the types of reading, writing, and critical thinking required by their new community – the university. Key elements of the course include understanding the rhetorical and cultural contexts that impact reading, writing, and learning; practicing the critical reading of academic texts; learning to develop insightful lines of inquiry and complex claims; and developing skill in the processes and conventions that lead to successful academic writing.
